Holy cow. It's been awhile! I am still here - alive and well, getting better every day, living life and hanging on by the coattails. So much is going on at the moment but first I wanted to share my "new" studio.
So, normally the studio is a hot mess. (See here) Large artist's table, industrial sewing machine and regular sewing machine station. Supplies, supplies, supplies. But that's all changed.
Why? It's time to make a change in our lives and we've decided to sell our home here in Georgia (more on that below).
To get the ball rolling, I had to clean it up and eliminate the clutter. I decided that for staging purposes (and because art has come first lately) the studio would be strictly for art.
OH MY GOSH you guys. Feeling a little stuck in a rut-ish? CLEAN up your space. I am madly - deeply, madly in love with the new space. WHY didn't I do this before? I felt like Marie Freaking Kondo. Does this item bring me joy? No? Out it goes.
First I removed EVERYTHING. Then we gave it a fresh coat of paint. Then I methodically added back. I hope you can tell I'm in no way exaggerating. It was a cleansing experience of epic proportions as I've moved through every room in the house. Again, more on that later.
For now. More pics...
There you have it! My new-to-me studio.
What else? We're excited to be moving to the cabin in the woods full time once the Georgia place is sold. Also said cabin is getting a little updating to make it more of a permanent house for Mr. P and me.
Aaaaand have I mentioned that my former model/recent graduate/new pediatric ICU nurse is getting married? No?
One more thought...
I heard someone say the other day that the days can be long but the years are short. Oh how true. Time gets away from you and before you know it you've been blogging for ten years, your kids are grown and gone and you're looking around thinking what the hell has happened??? I need to catch up!
So here I am. Still alive. Hanging on by the coattails.
